Models are 50% of the photograph, and I believe models’ ideas are as valid as mine. Please note that I invite models to bring a chaperone. I want to improve my portfolio, not find a girlfriend. If you have ideas for a shoot, contact me, and let’s shoot it.
I excel in all types of photography: landscapes, portraits, pet portraits, photojournalism, and glamour.
I am active in the Katseye Studio workshops. I have a BA; double major in English/Photography, and have been active in photography since 1967, when I built a framed, wired darkroom. I now use a computer as a digital darkroom, am proficient with Photoshop, and am pro level. Digital has been a renaissance.
When I shot film, I used the Pentax system. Since switching to digital, I use the Olympus system. When I bought my first dSLR, Olympus was the only camera to have a dust buster built into the body, and have stayed with that system. I have two 4/3 bodies: an Olympus E300 and a Lumix L1, along with a complement of lenses and lighting equipment.
